Earlier this morning, GoPro founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman, introduced new products and services that are said to simplify the process of capturing, editing and sharing content.

Not just an updated camera (GoPro HERO5), which of course they released as well, but a drone and a cloud-based subscription service. The drone, known as Karma, “Packs Hollywood-caliber aerial, handheld and gear mounted image stabilaztion into one backpack for $799,” states Woodman. The cloud based service, GoPro Plus, will allow subscribers to edit and share content anytime, anywhere using a phone or computer.

HERO5 Black


The most powerful and easy-to-use GoPro yet. The all new HERO5 boasts waterproof abilities without that annoying plastic housing to 33 feet, advanced wind noise reduction, GPS and voice control with support for 7 languages. This is just the beginning of the new and added benefits, but we hope you see the point. This tiny camera is packed full of new features and for less. Available on October 2, the HERO5 Black will be sold for $399.99.

HERO5 Session

Still the compact design like to original Session, this camera is packed with new added benefits. Now allowing you to auto-upload content to the cloud while camera is charging, voice control in 7 languages, and also waterproof without housing to 33 feet. This small package packs a large punch. Available October 2, for $299.99.


The Karma drone is much more than just your average drone. Well packaged, it fits into a small backpack and includes an image-stabilization grip (known to many as a gimbal) that can be handheld or mounted. GoPro boasts about it’s out-of-the-box usability with a game-style controller featuring touch display.. Sold seperate of the HERO5 Black, it will be released on the market on October 23rd for $799.99.

GoPro Plus

Sick of searching for that one specific cord? The new GoPro Plus allows you to easily offload content by simply plugging it in to charge. All content will be stored in a cloud-based subsciption service allowing you easy acces to edit and share, anywhere. The benfits don’t stop there, with your subscription you will get special access to a music library, 20% off mounts and accessories and premium support. The subscription service will cost $4.99 per month.
